I have a 95 ext 580 the hand and thumb warmers will heat up but not near as warm as they should get. Just wondering what could be done to solve problem.

Have you added anything to your electrical system lately, headlights, taillights, electric shield?

Check your ground for those two items... I would think they'd share the same ground, it may be that they don't have good contact.

ground is ok but I am not sure what the proper voltage is for the hand warmers. I am only reading about 4 volts. I also checked the head light voltage and it was the same. The head light is not burning dim but I think the sled should produce more voltage than this. I am thinking maybe the voltage regulater is bad. Anyway if anyone knows what the proper voltage should be that would be a great help, and also if it sounds like the voltage regulater is bad or not.

I had a similar problem on my summit. What i ended up doing was unplugging one of my headlights, that solved the problem right away. It just kinda sucks for night riding since i only have one headlight now.

Good post. I have added a heated shield and now my hand warmers aren't as hot. What can I do? Do I need to get power somewhere esle?

Please help!!!!

I was riding in Colebrook NH a few weeks ago and it was -12F and they just didn't get HOT.
